The Racial Justice & Equity Committee was formed in the Summer of 2020, and its stated goals are to:
Ensure Racial Justice & Equity in all phases of the disaster cycle
Build Racial Justice & Equity in the NYCVOAD network structure, including amending the bylaws, suggesting changes to the systems in place, and assessing who is chosen by organizations to represent them in the meetings.
Advocate for Racial Justice & Equity in NYCVOAD member organizations’ own structures, systems, hiring, and mentoring.
This Committee meets weekly on Thursdays from 4-5pm. To participate in the Committee, please email Helena Duran (email@example.com) to be added to the email list.
